Disable Local Inventory Cache Updates

Inventory caching keeps track of changes in inventory balances as they are processed on the scanners or desktop clients. These changes are then immediately reflected in the inventory position in NovoNexus transactions. The SQL table IPL_LOC_DETAIL_CACHE stores the temporary inventory information. Disabling Local Inventory Cache Updates by checking this box will stop the evaluation of IPL_LOC_DETAIL_CACHE. All inventory On-hand information will then come from IPL_LOC_DETAIL. This constant setting is most useful in an environment where NovoMotion is not rapidly updating the SQL database.

Warn user when Negative Inventory transactions are performed

This prompt is valid for multi-loc environments only. It has the following options:

  • N - No warnings on error: This setting will allow the negative inventory transaction and will give no error/warning message.

  • W - Warn the user on transaction: This setting will give the user a warning message but allow the transaction if the user chooses to proceed.
